Acratech 1117 Overview

The Acratech Leveling Base is a leveling base that fits between the tripod (or stand) and the tripod head, and can be used with any tripod that features a 3/8" head screw. This device allows for the photo or video head to be quickly leveled, independently from the tripod.

At its center is an oilless and greaseless ball that will not attract or hold dirt and debris. It allows 10° movement in any direction, and features smooth knob action for easy and secure positioning.

Precision bull's eye bubble level provides accurate positioning
Ball will not shift when tightened
Satin black anodized finish
All knobs are captive so they cannot fall off accidentally
Low profile design-just 1.77" (45mm) tall not including the 3/8"-16 threaded screw
2.4" (60mm) Base & top diameter(excluding the knob and bubble level)
Precision C.N.C. machining
Made in the U.S.A.

Asked by: Stephen
The Acratech Leveling Base, with 3/8" Tripod Thread - Supports 25 lb (11.4 kg), B&H #ACLB, listed above has a 3/8"-16 male thread on the top of the leveling base. If you need the option that uses the 1/4"-20 male thread, you may instead purchase the Acratech Leveling Base for Tripods with 1/4"-20 Thread Head Mount, B&H # ACLBS, for your usage needs.

What is the practical difference for landscape photography in a leveler such as this one that allows 10 degrees adjustment vs. others that allow 15 degrees adjustment--besides the extent of the allowed adjustment?
Asked by: Jerry
When on very uneven, sloping ground, I open the legs to get the best stability, then I use the levelling base to get the camera truly horizontal. I have never needed to re-adjust the legs due to any limitation in the levelling base. Hope that helps.

Does the Acratech Leveling base interfere with folding legs on the BeFree model tripods? Does it fit in the carry case?
Asked by: Dale
To our knowledge, this product would not interfere with the folding legs on tripods as found on the Manfrotto BeFree models.

Are there TABLE TOP TRIPODs that are compatible ...

Are there TABLE TOP TRIPODs that are compatible with this leveling base? preferably carbon fiber, but those are pricey.
Asked by: Roger
All of our bases are equipped with a standard 3/8-16 tripod socket, but we include a 1/4-20 adapter with every unit we sell. This allows them to work with just about any tripod on the market, even the table top tripods that will allow you to mount your own head. A quick search on the B & H and I am confused too, but I can tell you which ones we have experienced. The FLM CP10, Berlebach Mini Tripod and on the low end Sunwayfoto T1A11-II.

question

Has anybody bought this to use with the GP ballheads (which already have a levelling feature)?My GP-SS when inverted should be able to do level panoramas but if I need to tilt the ballhead up or down (while maintaining a level pan) I believe this levelling base is required as the ballhead base would need to be levelled first in order to rotate on a level horizon.
Asked by: Jon
I have both, the GP and ACLLB larger leveling base. Even though the GP does have the pano feature, the leveling base makes everything so much easier. I leave it on my tripod all the time and any ball head or pano head I use goes on top of it.

What is the max. diameter ball head that would fit on this without obscuring the bubble level?
